Attacks on traditional IT systems have resulted in massive loss of money, privacy and intellectual property. Even worse, attacks on the Internet of Things (IoT) potentially threaten our safety. This threat landscape exists alongside the ever-increasing demand for more technology to be embedded into coordinated devices used in healthcare, automobiles, aviation, critical infrastructure and smart city initiatives. More system complexity means that there is more threat surface that needs to be defended. It also means that there is more potential to make mistakes and introduce vulnerabilities.

This whitepaper, “Defending the Internet of Things: Identity at the Core of Security”, discusses meeting the demand for an IoT architecture that achieves security and assures performance.
